Herbs to Support a Candida Cleanse

Candida overgrowth—a common concern that I see in my nutrition practice today. Candida is a type of yeast that naturally resides in the body, can quickly become an overgrowth and cause issues to the balance of our microbiome. Some of those symptoms can appear as chronic yeast infections, UTIs, brain fog, bloat, irritability and trouble losing weight. Unfortunately, candida is a common concern in our society today yet it can be difficult to find information on how to go about cleansing. If you feel lost, this resource, listened to by thousands can be a great place to start. 

What is Candida?

Candida is a type of yeast that resides in our digestive system, mouth, and skin. Normally, it isn’t something we don’t need to worry about and it contributes to a balanced microbiome. However, factors such as poor diet, stress, and overuse of antibiotics can lead to an overgrowth of candida. This imbalance may create symptoms like fatigue, digestive issues, and skin problems. 

We can solve a candida overgrowth by doing a holistic candida cleanse involving anti-microbial herbs, an anti-fungal diet and supporting herbs like the ones mentioned below. 

Here are some herbs that will help you further the progress of your candida cleanse by helping to support the liver. Liver support is absolutely crucial when practicing any kind of cleanse:

Dandelion Root: 

Dandelion root supports the liver, our primary detox organ, in breaking down and eliminating toxins. By promoting liver health, dandelion root contributes to a balanced internal environment, which in turn, helps to inhibit candida overgrowth. 

Burdock Root: 

Burdock root is another anti-candida staple. Known for its blood-purifying qualities, burdock root aids in flushing out toxins and promoting a healthy, balanced microbiome. Its prebiotic properties also support beneficial gut bacteria, creating an environment where candida would struggle to flourish.


Cleavers is known for it’s incredible lymphatic support. By assisting the lymphatic system in removing waste and toxins, cleavers contribute to an environment where candida struggles to thrive. A well-functioning lymphatic system is vital for overall health and balance.


Nettle, a nutrient-dense herb, plays a vital role in our holistic approach to candida overgrowth. Loaded with essential vitamins and minerals, nettle supports the body, contributing to overall wellness. Additionally, its anti-inflammatory properties play a crucial role in maintaining a balanced internal environment, reducing conditions conducive to candida overgrowth. 


Ginger is both anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial making it an anti-candida staple. By soothing inflammation and promoting digestive health, ginger creates an environment where candida struggles to thrive.

You can find all of these herbs in our detox tea formula, which was originally created for those who are in their stages of cleansing or are trying to maintain good health. After a cup of detox tea, you will already feel supported in your health. Keep in mind that our detox tea is not a laxative, but instead a tea that will promote healthy bowels, and liver support.
